What are the best cars and SUVs for people over 6-feet tall? Just like people, not all vehicles are one size fits all. Consumer Reports (by subscription) did an extensive study and found the best cars and SUVs for tall people. Surprisingly, Subaru has two models that make the 10-best list. The 2021 Subaru Forester and the 2021 Subaru Legacy sedan win their categories.
You usually don’t think of Subaru as building the roomiest cabins, but Subaru’s design offers taller drivers more room than other models. The 2021 Subaru Forester wins the Best Compact SUV, and the 2021 Subaru Legacy takes home the Best Midsize Car for tall drivers.
